If you are an admitted degree candidate in the ALB, ALM Liberal Arts, or ALM Museum Studies program, you can apply for a Harvard Divinity School (HDS) tuition voucher to take a maximum of one four-credit, graduate-level course free of charge that can apply to your Harvard Extension School degree.
Special consideration will be given to ALB and ALM candidates with either a field of study or concentration in religion, respectively. Minimum credit and GPA requirements apply for both ALB and ALM candidates. Master’s candidates need to check in with their academic advisor, because not all courses will count toward each master’s field.
- Application deadlines are August 1 for fall and December 1 for spring.
